    Jill is pursuing her master’s degree in health and physical education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She is currently a graduate assistant for the Special Needs Activity Program. She graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in criminology and criminal justice. Jill worked with juvenile delinquent teenage boys at a residential treatment facility for nearly a year and a half after graduation. She fully enjoyed working with the kids, but realized this was not the ideal setting. Combining her two passions, working with kids and physical activity, has inspired her to continue her education here at IUP. Jill has always enjoyed being active and being involved in sports. She is excited to be able to influence healthy lifestyles onto kids as a health and physical education teacher.
